Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC) and the Warren YMCA are presenting “Turkeys and Fish” on Saturday morning, March 26.

You are invited to drop in anytime between 10 and 11:30 a.m. at the Warren YMCA, 212 Lexington Avenue, in Warren, Pa.

With opening seasons for both turkeys and fish coming up soon, this is a great opportunity to learn more about each of these animals.

You can explore the adaptations of turkeys with artifacts like feathers, skulls, feet, and eggs. Audubon will have a mounted turkey available for size reference and to see the birds up close.

A play fishing pond will introduce visitors to some common fish of the area while they “catch” some of their own. Other activities and crafts will be available as well.

Thanks to sponsorship by Whirley DrinkWorks!, the program is free, and no reservations are necessary.
